A hidden Gem
I had a quiet, clean, comfortable room to rest up in after long excursions.
There are beautiful birds that sing in the trees lining the car port as you leave for your day. I would return. The staff were helpful to find places to go. The breakfast available is very good.

Disapointing facility - exterior gives false impre
close to town for restaurants
Pre-paid 2 rooms (3 people in total)for two non-consecutive nights. First night no electric jug in one room and room heating (a/c) on 'cold', in both rooms. Asked office staff to replace jug - promised, but not done. One teaspoon in both units only. VERY small rooms and limited space around hand basins for toileteries. One room had a combined bath/shower with broken towel rail, used by previous occupant(s) as 'assist rail'. Need to make sure toilet seat is closed, if using wc cistern for necessary storage space. Overpriced for what was provided. Second night (different rooms) had electric jugs in both rooms, prompted by my displeasure on earlier stay. Now two teaspoons per room, but no bath towels in one room. Towels were provided reasonably quickly, as was a toaster. Power point for electric shaver displayed, but no power. Their restaurant prices very high, by motel standards. Both stays were considered overpriced, and POOR VALUE FOR MONEY !

Great Place to stay
Clean, great staff and management & price.
These guys deserve some free advertising, great place to stay, great staff & management, go out of their way to make your stay comfortable. Best price ever for really clean & modern rooms, hard to beat, in fact I will discussing with my management around our company staying here as well for work as really reasonable. Food is excellent.

Tired, run-down motel. Adequate facilities.
Location, parking, grounds.
Uncomfortable bed with the 'roll-together' problem and thin pillows. No iron in cupboard, though there was an ironing board. Gluten free bread was provided, but no GF cereal, even though 2 weeks notice was given, when booking was made. Buffet breakfast was always running low, or out of the popular dishes. The same with the coffee dispenser, which as everybody knows, is essential to keep topped up, if you want to keep your customers happy. The price was good though.
